Track & Trace System Facilitates Transparent Pharmaceutical Supply Process
With the escalation of the vaccine incident, the public's trust in local pharmaceutical companies continues to decline. How to regain public trust? Penalties and declarations will not solve the problem ultimately. The only remedy is to establish a valid drug supervision code system - Track & Trace System - to make drug production and sales more transparent.
What is Track & Trace System?
The Track & Trace System, consisting of an anti-counterfeiting coding system and a barcode traceability system, is designed to give a unique identity code to products and packages. By linking to the information of production procedures, it enables the reverse inquiry of a product in terms of its logistics, manufacturing and ingredients, and provides big data analysis for market consumption inquiry as well as information about authenticity, logistics, regional sales, and user scope.
What are the functions of the Track & Track System?
Through the close combination of the two systems, it generates a unique, non-repetitive information label for each drug product, and the label is perfectly integrated with the product. The information of each specific procedure from manufacturing to distribution to sales will be recorded in detail in the central database or the encrypted IoT cloud platform.
① Preventing counterfeit drugs: Each drug product is given a unique ID number, which is associated with the product's batch, origin, storage, logistics and sales, and even the secret code of the pharmaceutical company for convenient management during production. Since the counterfeit drug manufacturers do not have such information, they cannot reproduce the anti-counterfeit code. In this way, the system makes counterfeit drugs have nowhere to hide.
② The original barcode is replaced with the QR code, which enables a larger information
① Searchable origin: It ensures the searchability of the drug origin to effectively prevent fake drugs and unauthorized drugs from appearing on the market, thus maximizing profits.
② Traceable destination: Through the bound logistics and sales information, the system provides the whereabouts of drugs to prevent channel conflict, and quickly locates and diagnoses the condition of the drugs to be recalled.
③ Accountability: When there is a problematic product, the system can easily identify which procedure goes wrong and who is the responsible person, thus realizing accountability.
④ The system increases the transparency of drug manufacturing and sales, which is conducive to the image of assured and ethical drugs.
